Aunt Elvi Girls Dorm

20% Donated/$ To Go

Stressed parents, teachers, children and schools. The question that remains is, are schools safe to open? The Ministry of Education in Uganda recently released a draft of very strict guidelines for schools to follow in the event of reopening. Aunt Elvi, like most schools, has a boarding section. We have been concerned prior to COVID-19 with the poor bathroom facilities for the girls. We thought it would be easy and cost effective to construct a bathroom and attach it to their current dormitory. After a visit to the school, we realized that would not work because the current dormitory has major cracks (new wine into old wine skins don’t mix!). Plans have changed, we will need to construct an entire dormitory with a bathroom. The total construction estimate is $20,000 with $5,000 needed to start the foundation.

Please pray and stand with us to make this a reality for a new dormitory/bathroom for the girls at Aunt Elvi.

Feeding the poor during the COVID-19 shutdown

0% Donated/$ To Go

Times in Uganda are tough not only due to fears of infection but also because of poverty. Uganda’s poor are bearing the brunt of a nationwide shutdown declared by President Yoweri Museveni as part of efforts to contain the novel coronavirus outbreak. With our sponsored children normally getting their nutrition from school, no longer attending school means many children, and their families, will go hungry. We have begun providing dry goods (pasta, rice, beans, etc.) to families in need to help feed the most vulnerable. Will you support us in this effort? A donation of $50 will feed a family of 4 for up to a month. Or, you can use our online store to buy food for your sponsored child…

We believe that children grow up best in families. Our children range from ages 6-21 and are in educational programs from kindergarten to the university level. We strive to help each child reach their potential in life.
